As of today, two Muncie fire stations are home to special vending machines stocked with supplies to help the city’s homeless after-hours, when local service agencies aren’t open. As IPR’s Stephanie Wiechmann reports, the machines are the first-of-their-kind in Indiana.
“Things like hygiene items, bottles for water, hairbrushes, combs, chapstick…”
That’s Karee Buffin, with Bridges Community Services. She’s awaiting the placement of the organization’s second vending machine to serve the homeless.
